13. Resurrection and Ascension
1. The Resurrection
After Jesus' death in the cross, his disciples put him in a sepulchre and closed it with a great stone.
El domingo por la mañana, On Sunday morning Mary Magdalene and other women went to the sepulchre with perfumes and found the door open. The sepulchre was empty, and an angel said to them: “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here” (Mc 16,6). His body and soul are joined together again.
Jesus had appeared to different people: to Mary Magdalene, to the blessed women, to Peter and the apostles, to his disciples from Emaus and, first of all, to his Mother, the Virgin. With his power He defeated death, because He is God.
The resurrection is the basis of the Christian creed; is the main argument and the truth of our faith.
